I used SCAL (Sure Cuts A Lot) for this layout. You can download images from the internet and then trace them in SCAL. I did this with the Detroit Tigers symbol and the title. You can download those files for embossing here... Tigers As you can see from the image, I added a dashed border around the outside, a feature I just love in SCAL. I then used the Chomas Creations embossing kit and the Ten Seconds Studios metal sheets (colored side down) to emboss the images. After they were done, I sanded the raised side to make the images pop, reminds me of the old fashioned signs!
For the background paper for this page, I downloaded a fence image, then used the Chomas Creations mini gel pen holder with the black metallic mini gel pen on kraft cardstock. You can download the fence image here... fence image
I did the journaling on one of my journaling circles I have tons of, then added to the metal sheet and just cut around it...
You know how sometimes someone hops into your pictures, and you really just don't want them there? Well that explains the clever placing of buttons on my photo!
A heads up that by clicking the shop button at the top of my blog, you will be brought to my online store. While it doesn't look pretty yet, it does work, and I can now take credit cards, as well as paypal. Prettiness to come later, as soon as I get this zen cart thing figured out, UGH!
